Sri Lanka: Understanding The Tamil Conflict

G. Kuganesan at Voices In Exile sheds a light into the background of the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka: “The Tamil conflict has deep roots, distant ties that date well beyond the mere formation of a violent LTTE (Tamil Tigers) movement, a history buried in discrimination, segregation, and specific ethnic biases based on the ‘indifference of man'…The Tamils do not fight for ‘an independent state’ out of greed. They fight for an independent state for ‘Freedom’, for safety.”
